Description

The Sauber C15 was the car with which the Sauber team competed in the 1996 Formula One season.
It was driven by Heinz-Harald Frentzen, who was in his third season with the team, and Johnny Herbert, who moved from Benetton.

After an encouraging performance in 1995 with a Ford V8 engine, 1996 proved frustrating as Sauber developed the troublesome Zetec-R V10.
Problems with the new unit's power delivery resulted in the team scoring only 11 points, despite the theoretical power advantage over a V8.

The drivers proved well-matched, with Frentzen having a slight edge over Herbert. However, the German left the team at the end of the year to join champions Williams for 1997.
The team's second podium finish since its F1 d├ębut in 1993 was scored by Herbert at the chaotic 1996 Monaco Grand Prix, with Frentzen in fourth.
Heinz-Harald scored further points at Catalunya and Suzuka.

The team eventually finished seventh in the Constructors' Championship, with 11 points.
